Syllabus


The aims of the syllabus, common to both levels, are:
• to give students an understanding of the fundamental principles of physics and their application to everyday life and technology
• to develop an appreciation of physics as a human endeavour, thereby enriching the students’ experience of life
• to provide a reasonably broad perspective of physics, thus developing an understanding of the physical environment and of how human beings interact with it
• to provide a general education in physics for all students, whether or not they proceed to further studies in physics
• to develop the ability to observe, to think logically, and to communicate effectively
• to develop an understanding of the scientific method
• to develop an appreciation of physics as a creative activity, using informed intuition and imagination to create an understanding of the beauty, simplicity and symmetry in nature.
